    Description

    Detective Comics #3 (DC, 1937) CGC GD- 1.8 Brittle Pages. This is one tough-to-find comic book. Overstreet calls it "rare", while Gerber calls it "very rare", signifying that between six and ten are thought to exist. It's only the third unrestored copy that we have ever offered and only the fourth copy that CGC has certified with a blue label. The cover is by Creig Flessel, one of the top talents of the Golden Age, while the tales of detection inside the comic are courtesy of artists such as Flessel, Joe Shuster (this predates Action Comics #1, you'll note), and Sven Elven. A great find in any grade! CGC notes, "Moderate amount of tape on cover." Overstreet 2012 GD 2.0 value = $3,000. CGC census 5/13: 2 in 1.8, 3 higher.
